Clarus Investment Solutions
IMO Financial Services has engaged an external investment consultancy firm, Clarus Investment Solutions, to provide independent and specialised investment support.
We asked Clarus to carry out an assessment of funds offered by all of the domestic life companies and to produce a set of preferred funds across three different risk bands.
In total, Clarus surveyed more than 100 funds in the following categories:
- Active Global Equities
- Passive Global Equities
Funds were ranked using a bespoke scoring system which takes account of some 20 criteria such as returns, volatility, diversification and longevity of track record. A number of qualitative criteria are also applied. The survey includes an assessment of the preferred funds’ sustainability characteristics.
The selection of preferred funds is now available to our members. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to discuss this matter further or indeed if you wish to review your existing portfolio.

Prior to setting up Clarus its principals (Joe Mottley and Paul McCarville) had many years of experience at senior level in asset management.
